    Temps will be colder or warmer than average. There may or may not be snow which may be more or less than average.

    $55,000 salary, please.

    Farmer's Alamanc has been better and nearly head on last 3-4 years for us! Mick - your check went out today, will come from DM, Inc., so be on the lookout for it! $55K is cheap for the forecasters here, might use you again! LOL!!! That is about what they are like here too! They are guessers here and always guess wrong.

    don't you wish you could be paid to be wrong all the time too? forget to salt a parking lot or just tell your customer you thought it was going to be sunny and 35 so it didn't need to be plowed, then turn in a bill lol

    With this past weather patterns we have been having this summer, i wouldnt doubt another crazy winter again. I cant say for sure, but the Eastern United States could see more snow then last winter

    I hate to say it but if the strong el-nino and east base develops every1 east of the Mississippi is going to be in trouble......we want a weak-mod el-nino west based to set-up. Right now its warming at a alarming rate......we just need to watch it......i hope this does not screw us

    I hope it is a good one! Time will tell....2007/2008 was a crazy sleet/ice year for us and it was El Nino right?

    Snowday is right is was a la nina/netural....last el nino was in 2006-2007.....that winter sucks for every1 until febuary when we got some good snow. 2002-2003 was a weak el nino. My area got rock with close to 70 inches that year. Its just a wait and see........they should kno more by the end of august. No matter what type of el-nino develops look out denver....then are going to get a bunch of snow this winter
